The AC evaporator is the central component of your car’s AC system. It takes in the cold refrigerant fluid and transforms it into a gaseous state by evaporating it. The AC evaporator combines this gas with passing warm air which cools the air down. This cool air is later distributed throughout your car’s cabin when the AC is turned on.
Signs of a bad AC evaporator
